Ancient Egypt remains one of the most perennially popular and fascinating cultures of the ancient world. This illustrated book offers a wide-ranging and accessible introduction to the art, monuments and history of ancient Egypt. The book takes a chronological approach, covering the predynastic and early dynastic periods when Egyptian civilization began to develop, the great pyramid-building age of the Old Kingdom, the splendid art of the Middle Kingdom, the great days of the New Kingdom when Rameses II extended the borders of the Egyptian empire to its greatest extent, and the late Ptolemaic period when Egypt fell under Greek rule. In these pages you will find over 300 illustrations of the statues, monuments, temples, tombs, sculpture, papyri, wall paintings and relief’s from all periods of ancient Egyptian history, creating a vivid picture of this fascinating culture.
